Instructor: James Maher
Explore Chinatown with local street photographer and dumpling expert James Maher. See the old ornate carved stone tenement buildings, learn about the dangerous history of the old Five Points neighborhood famously featured in “The Gangs of New York”, including a street called “The Bloody Angle,” the most murderous spot in the history of New York. Photograph the colorful streets and bright signs of Chinatown and learn how to capture the people and their culture. We will explore alleyways and gorgeous old streets, visit Columbus Park where neighborhood residents play Chinese Chess and gamble, and much more. And if you’re lucky, James might even show you his favorite spot for soup dumplings.
